congress. >> horrible numbers for congress. >> a pitiful 14%. >> pretty bad numbers on john boehner's report card. >> the debt ceiling is a dangerous game. >> i don't see that as a winner for them. >> don't fight battles you can't win. >> it is a troubled time for the party. >> let's stop for a second. >> let's make clear decisions. >> the republican strategy. >> stop talking about rape. >> don't fight battles you can't win. >> it is a troubled time for the party, get something done. >> we have to be the party of new solutions, we're not just going to be the party of no. >> it is groundhog day. >> the conservatives, the retreat, we've come a long way since. >> i'm ezra klein in for lawrence o'donnell, one of the great moments, when redford having just won the election, sits down on the bed taking it all in. the next few words are not just to ever film junky, pretty much to every political candidate. >> what do we do now? >> what do we do now? that is always the question, what do you do now when you have to govern? but it is not just a question that affects winners, sometimes losers
. but we know that john boehner often has had trouble with his various plans. plan b most notoriously, getting them approved, accepted and passed by his own house republicans. and cantore made a very declarative statement today. there already immediately were grumblings that some house republicans will go along with this i'm not sure that democrats will, too. it remains to be seen whether, indeed, john boehner and cantore can get passed what they want to do. then again this is just another three-month extension. now the good news for the vix watchers out there is that this puts it past, you know, the coming showdowns on sequestration involving the budget which will all kind of happen in march. so this is one cliff that may not happen as two other cliffs are under way. three months from now, depending what happens with those cliffs and what happens with the economy, the house republicans, the tea partiers and the let's blow it to hell members of the republican caucus may not want to go along with this for another extension. the president has clearly won, steered them down, as he said h
to happen. then, mitch mcconnell and john boehner came and said stop. i think people just thought that will happen because we elected him. we learned that. the president learned it. i think msnbc learned it and congress and the public most importantly learned it. that this just doesn't happen because of an election. it happens because of an election and then it means going online, it means doing rallies, it means educating your neighbors at church and the workplace and in school. >> now, you're using the word takers in this speech, i mean going right after the right and a reminder of people what the election was about. i looked right across at paul ryan when he said it. i mean, given the republicans parties and their positions right now, can he get this agenda done? >> i think republicans sometimes look to the next election, too. and when they think about how the demographics are changing, how the philosophy of young people is changing, i the they understand that when you're talking about this 47%, the takers, it's veterans and people who paid the medicare and realize it's workers
it already is. but house speaker john boehner is warning about it. he insists now that president obama has adopted a scorched earth policy toward republicans. chief white house correspondent ed henry has the specifics. >> congratulations. godspeed. [ applause ] >> within 24 hours of the traditional inaugural lunchen, speaker john boehner was singing another tune about president obama's intentions. >> so we are expecting here over the next 22 months, to be the focus of this administration. as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us in to the history. >> today, white house spokesman jay carney rejected that charge, saying you heard them say in the inaugural address, even though we have profound differences it's imperative we come together. in the inaugural address, though, the president also took this shot at republicans. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. or substitute spectacle for politics. or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. >> in the public believes since the re-election, the president
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
on inside that inaugural luncheon where the president is sitting down with harry reid and john boehner and talking with evan bahy over the weekend, i'm sure they took the sharp objects off the table and have a food taster. and one said, don't worry, my vice chair lamar alexander will be sitting between them to make sure things are civil. all joking aside, they thought this is going to be a good luncheon and everybody will be professional and the big battles of course, will come tomorrow. and don't forget that hillary clinton is also, secretary of state going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. that will be another big event that happens here on capitol hill. now, to the parade, we can pan off just a little bit and you can see that some folks have gathered here at the beginning of the parade, quite a bit different than it was at least at this point from 2009, where people were 20, 30 deep along the parade route. we'll probably see that, and looks like people, five, six people deep headed down constitution avenue. we make the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up
have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. there's a reality check within minutes of him doing so. people have been queuing up from both sides of the senate and saying look, he may want an assault weapons ban but he's not going to
of this equation? >> without a doubt. if you heard speaker john boehner just the other day after the inaugural address saying the president is trying to annihilate the republican party. that's a strong word. but does this president see an opportunity? i'd be interested in the congresswoman's opinion. you can't find many democrats who think that president obama worries about the democratic party, 10, 15, 20 years down the road. but you will find a lot of democrats who say if you can turn the obama coalition into a democratic coalition, the democrats will have built in on the national stage what ronald reagan had for 20 years and republican party had after ronald reagan on the national stage. this coalition, if he can transfer it over, it spells trouble for the republicans. >> congresswoman, what do you think about what john king is saying? >> i'm not privy to the president's processes and how he came up with the decision. all i can tell you is women have been dying and fighting and bleeding for this nation in combat roles in iraq and afghanistan. they may not have had those jobs specifically ot
is too small. >>brian: we now know why michelle obama rolled her eyes at house speaker john boehner during monday's inauguration luncheon in the capitol. according to a professional lip reader -- >>gretchen: i knew it was a joke between two guys. >>brian: boehner asked the president if he had a cigarette and then somebody won't let you do it. >>gretchen: president obama, a longtime smoker claims to have kicked the habit. you can tell when we looked at this video yesterday that the two gentlemen were enjoying some sort of joke that michelle obama did not think was funny. now we know why. of course. she's probably been trying to help her husband kick the habit. keep in mind, her initiative is healthy america. it has to do with obesity but also healthy america. john boehner, as we know, totally his right. he's a smoker. maybe it's the one thing that john boehner and president obama agree on. >>brian: that john boehner should keep smoking? >>gretchen: no. that they enjoy a cigarette from time to time. >>steve: if she said to one of the 60 minutes reporters i was only allowed to run for
house speaker john boehner. we will have congresswoman nancy pelosi. we will have congressman kevin mccarthy. we will have senator carl levin. on both sides of the aisle, they will be here honoring folks who will be coming who have been hand picked with the help of the dod and folks at the pentagon, wounded warriors, actually i was just talking to one of the organizers tonight, don. she told me one of the widows from s.e.a.l. team 6 will be here tonight. so we will try to talk to her. and a couple of awards will be handed out. just quickly, we learned a number of the tuskegee airmen will be near attendance and perhaps perhaps, the big headliner, is lynyrd skynyrd, good old southern rock guys. they will be here presenting and introducing some of these tuskegee airmen. look out for that we will be here. we will bring you the party live from the warner theater, the red, white and blue ball. don lemon, you jealous? >> all right. oh, yes, of course i am. but you should be jealous because i'm going to the hip-hop ball as well. you have got your party shoes on, you are appropriately dressed.
even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progres
was not alone in his sentiments, addressing the rippon society on tuesday. speaker john boehner had this to say. >> we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to anilealate the republican party. i do believe that is their goal. to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> kevin mccarthy doubles down. >> this person's main goal is to continue to try to break the republican party. he is out of touch of where america is at with what he is trying to do. it was more of a speech for a progressive party agenda. >> then there was congressman paul brown who offered this choice analysis. "i think the only constitution that barack obama upholds is the soviet constitution, not this one." joining the panel now is the editor of the new republic, a man who has suffered for several hours on the amtrak train, frank lynn for. >> privatize that sucker. >> seriously. >> blood-sucking libertarian. >> that is saying something, my friend. >> exactly. >>. >> we keep asking whether the republican party will come up with a new idea? the biggest idea is that presid
to all house republicans and said your fight is not with john boehner, your fight is with james madison. he wrote this system this is the government we have. if you believe in the constitution, we have division of power. tough work within that to get an agreement. >> so, then frame that for me as words in a speech tomorrow that the president's delivering. he has to say -- >> the speech tomorrow should be the big picture above it all, should not be specific policies. save it for the state of the union that is a more plebeian speech. the power of the inaugural speech, what you want to in your president. >> ari fleisher, nice to have you this afternoon. >> great to be here. >> so great to be here with you, of course, i'm john berman. >> thank you. >> thank you so much for joining us this special coverage of president obama's inauguration. >> of course, i'm soledad o'brien. our special coverage continues all afternoon. don lemon's going to be up next with more from here in washington, d.c. ♪ [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up to be the world's best sport
polling, 81% disapprove and the personal ratings of congressional leaders are under water. john boehner especially back, upside down by 19 points on the rating and the republican party's negative rating, 49%, is at the all-time high for the gop during obama's presidency. just 26% see the party in a positive light. the gop lost the most ground with self described republicans. the tea party also has its lowest rating ever, positive views of the tea party, they have dropped to just 23%. joining me now while i get a glass of water after those numbers, nbc news senior political editor mark murray. listen. not to chew on again, but mark, why i like the segments is based on numbers. questions to what we assume are average voters out there and getting a glimpse of what these people both feel about their own personal situations and what some might call the shenanigans in d.c. >> the context is very important here, tamron. this is after the fiscal cliff fight we had right over the new year and also comes after the tragic shootings in newtown, connecticut. and of course, sets up president obama's
to work. guess who decides? it's eric cantor and john boehner. put us to work four or five days a week. >> i have a little different opinion. first of all, i love going home because i live in paradise, south florida and right about now i like to be there and i like to get with my constituents and hear what they have to say. >> one of the rare congress members who likes her district. >> yes. >> i love being in florida. but i also believe in first do no harm. it sort of concerns me in the house the type of legislation that would be brought forward. so i'm not as disappointed that these people are not bringing, you know, rushing with their bills. >> because you don't think they'll be good bills. >> no. i don't think they can be good bills. >> this function goes even further. the fact that last session for six weeks they didn't have flood insurance in place, 47,000 people couldn't close on their homes. >> right. >> that is not even logical. it is pure dysfunction. >> but that is the point isn't it, mark? because look. >> that is the point you're making. >> i'm the care giver for my mom. i
. but you're right. they have as john boehner likes to say, they have just this -- they have the house. one half of one-third of what controls washington. so boehner is a national leader. you have mitch mcconnell, minority leader in the senate. but they don't have the platforms that the president of the united states has. on the other hand, they do control the house of representatives. and if -- a fiscal resolution to some of the fiscal issues. >> they don't agree on any of those issues, though. >> not at all. so what's -- how does he move his agenda through this congress, right? when republicans control the house? the only model we have so far is what happened with the fiscal cliff. negotiate a deal on the senate between republicans, democrats and the white house, and then force it through the house of representatives by basically putting republicans' backs to the wall and making them pass it either at the last minute, because there is a deadline approaching or because they'll be so embarrassed if they don't pass it. and that's not a great legislative strategy for every issue. but the issu
john boehner claims that president obama's second term focus is to, quote, annihilate the republican party. >> we're expecting to hear over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. >> boehner said he and other house republicans charted out a short-term strategy last week but the party needs to begin a broader discussion about upcoming key policy debates. >>> so she knocked off serena williams earlier this week but this morning 19-year-old american tennis phenom sloan stephens is out of the australian open. victoria azarenka beat her in straight sets. stephens had to sit and wait again during a medical time-out. azarenka asked for it after she botched five game points. bottom line, azarenka goes on, sloan stephens does not. >>> now to wales and soccer. so it looks like a cheap shot on the ball boy here. check it out. was the ball boy there actually being a ball hog or is this just a big misunderstanding? what was going on here, you make the call. a replay showed that chelsea's eden hazard kicking the teenager after t
control law pass under john boehner's speakership or stick their heads in the sand and have it pass under nancy pelosi's speakership. they're playing -- it's the long play. >> i have a question for you. what do you think the polls would have shown before "madd" was organized to have a campaign against drunk driving about whether you could have an open container in your car or whether it's wise to drive after having a couple shooters in a bar. or whether you're going somewhere and somebody in the back seat has a six-pack. what do you think the polls would say about that? >> all of that matters. and i think what the -- undertone of what the president was saying, he has to marshal this kind of cultural battle. it's not automatic. we can sit here in midtown manhattan where everybody would agree with us. but outside of here, not everybody does. in fact, there is an amazing statistic that shows that 23% of people in our poll call the availability of guns as the cause of gun violence compared with 37% who pointed to parenting and 37% who talked about public culture. >> but rick, i've got to brin
